We know the importance of accessing care in an environment that is safe, supportive, and inclusive. All HealthQ services are for all genders and sexual orientations. Our staff is trained to provide gender inclusive care and are very open to helping tailor your experience.
Gender Affirming Care
Gender Affirming Care
As part of our commitment to providing inclusive and equitable care, our whole health care team has been trained in providing responsive and confident gender-affirmative health care, grounded in research evidence and best clinical practices.
As a Massachusetts transgender medical clinic in Lawrence, Haverhill, and Beverly you can count on us to be comprehensive, effective and affirming across all of our service offerings including but not limited to the following:
- Annual exams
- At-home or in-office STI testing and treatment
- Rapid HIV testing
- HPV vaccination
- PrEP for HIV prevention
- A wide variety of birth control options
- In-clinic and medication abortion
- Cancer screenings (anal and cervical Pap tests and clinical breast exams)
Removing Barriers to Care
Our mission is to provide sexual and reproductive health care—without judgement and without barriers. We recognize that our transgender patients encounter disproportionate barriers to care when compared to those with gender privilege, including higher rates of uninsurance due to job loss and job insecurity. HealthQ has a contract from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to help cover the costs of gender affirming hormone therapy for transgender residents of Massachusetts who do not have insurance, or whose insurance does not cover this service.
Reach Out to Our LGBTQIA Patient Navigator
We acknowledge that transgender and gender diverse people face a unique range of issues and health disparities, and may have experienced discrimination, trauma, and harassment in the healthcare system. We have educated our office staff about transgender issues and etiquette in order to provide a professional and welcoming environment. We do not want you to forego or delay seeking preventative reproductive or sexual healthcare for any reason. If you have questions or concerns and would like to learn more about our commitment to serving the transgender and gender diverse communities, please feel free to call or text Jill, our LGBTQIA Patient Navigator (she/hers).
